Baan Itsra Restaurant: Fusion food by the sea
No matter where you decide to take a trip, if the food isn’t good, chances are that you won’t return there even if you had a good time. To not ruin your trip to Hua Hin, be sure to fill up your stomach at least once at Baan Itsra Restaurant. It is one of the first Thai-European restaurants to be opened in Hua Hin that excels in fusion food.
- Baan Itsara Restaurant is a terrace style restaurant with fusion cuisine. There are a variety of Thai and European dishes offered here.
- Recommended dishes include the Grilled Mackerel in Raw Fish Sauce, Boiled Sweet Squid Yum, Stir Fried Scallops or Seafood in Sweet Basil Sauce, etc.
- If you are coming to Baan Itsara Restaurant during the weekend, it is advised that you make reservations. Call 032 530 574 or 032 511 673.
Baan Itsara Restaurant is a 2-story wooden house located nearby Hua Hin beach. There are tables and chairs indoor as well as outdoor. Seats outdoor have a good view of the sea but the breeze is quite strong which many find annoying while eating.
The first recommended dish you’ll want to order at Baan Itsara Restaurant is the Stir-fried Scallops in Sweet Basil Sauce. This dish is served on a hot plate and may not seem appealing, but one taste will change your mind. If you are not a fan of (or allergic to) shellfish, you can replace the scallops with something else. Next dish is the Boiled Sweet Squid Yum (Thai salad). Squeeze some lemon to this dish to make it taste even better.
One very difficult dish to find in Hua Hin is the Grilled Mackeral in Raw Fish Sauce. The Mackerel are wrapped and grilled in banana leaves, and then fish sauce is poured over it. Lastrecommended dish is the Tom Yum Buay Nua Pla Kao – Grouper Fish in Plum Tom Yum. End your meal with Look Tarn Loy Kaew – Toddy in Sweet Syrup. This cold Thai dessert will leave you refreshed.
The popularity of Baan Itsra Restaurant and their delightful cuisine attracts many customers, especially during the weekends. If you want to get a table here, you should call to make reservations. Fusion food is not easy to make, nor is it easy come by, but Baan Itsra can really pull it off. Be sure to dine here if you’re in Hua Hin.
